Update: Nvidia has now confirmed this "unauthorized published game list" is indeed the real deal, but has insisted that “inclusion on the list is neither confirmation nor an announcement of any game."
Here's what a spokesperson had to say to Wccftech:
“Nvidia is aware of an unauthorized published game list, with both released and/or speculative titles, used only for internal tracking and testing”, a company spokesperson told Wccftech. “Inclusion on the list is neither confirmation nor an announcement of any game.
“Nvidia took immediate action to remove access to the list. No confidential game builds or personal information were exposed.”
Original story: Nvidia's GeForce Now database has apparently revealed a number of upcoming projects from Xbox Game Studios and other companies. According to leaked information from the cloud gaming service, Xbox has a number of titles on the way to PC. While this data is seemingly the real deal, nothing has been officially confirmed.
Apart from Gears 6, the other Xbox Game Studios' titles mentioned include Project Holland (believed to be Fable), Project Typhoon (Contraband), Project Woodstock (Forza), an untitled game from the Perfect Dark developer The Initiative, Halo 5: Guardians, Avowed, Kalimba and Gravity. And last but not least is 'Oxide' - which is believed to be a simulation/strategy city builder game internally known as Project Indus.
On the third-party front, previously rumoured and new games are listed. Here's the roundup (Reddit via Push Square):
Chrono Cross Remaster, Final Fantasy Tactics Remaster, Final Fantasy IX Remake (possibly just a reference to the recent remaster), Kingdom Hearts IV, Resident Evil 4 Remake (previously rumoured), Street Fighter 6, Dragon's Dogma 2 (previously rumoured), Monster Hunter 6, Grand Theft Auto Remasters (previously rumoured), BioShock 2022, Mirror's Edge Remaster, Untitled Respawn Game, Titanfall 3, Tekken 8, The Talos Principle 2, Crysis 4, Batman Arkham Knight Remaster, XCOM 3, Injustice 3: Gods Will Fall, Destroy All Humans 3, Sniper Elite 5, Cities: Skylines 2, Fight for Middle-Earth, Mortal Kombat XII, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Remaster (recently debunked by Activision), Helldivers 2
It's quite a lot to take in, but once again - nothing is official and the data available here could be easily misinterpreted. The leak has also been described as ongoing, so if we hear any updates - we'll be sure to let you know.

I'm fairly convinced now that the Capcom games are real because as some may remember, Capcom got hacked last year and it revealed tons of upcoming projects: https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2020/11/rumour_massive_capcom_leak_reveals_dragons_dogma_2_street_fighter_6_new_monster_hunter_onimusha_more
Resident Evil 4 Remake, Street Fighter 6, Dragon's Dogma 2 and Monster Hunter 6 seem to be legit then since they are mentioned both here and in the leak from last year. RE4 Remake does make sense since they've already remade 2 and 3.
Would also be cool to see Kingdom Hearts IV, but that may not even come out for another five years or more.
All these great games coming out later..... Honestly its starting to feel like by the time most of the really good exclusives come out for xbox you will need the next xbox to play them well.
I’m absolutely shocked that there will be a Gears 6.
Oh my! Please be true Chrono cross, ff tactics!! Injustice 3. Wowza..
For Project Woodstock, I hope it's a Forza Horizon prequel that takes place during the 1st Horizon Festival. Maybe a FH5 DLC?
I really want a Chrono Cross Remaster, but I will take this with tons of salt.
Almost all of Capcom's leaks have me dreaming, Monster Hunter, Street Fighter...
Kingdom Hearts IV? They don't need over a decade this time, right? III looks awesome on Unreal Engine 4, I guess that the next one is on Unreal Engine 5 and will look even better.
I'd love to play Chrono Cross!
@Rural-Bandit I've played Gears of War 1, 2 and playing 3 now on Series X, all of them for the first time. I believe that they are the most enjoyable shooters since Rare's Golden Eye 007, the latter is more stealthy, obviously. They have some Resident Evil vibes, too. Brilliant campaigns.
@LtSarge They should remake Code Veronica first.
60 FPS mode for Red Dead Redemption 2
@Royalblues The really weird one is Oxide - we'd never heard that name before, but Jez Corden at WindowsCentral had it confirmed by his insiders at Microsoft in reasonable detail.
It really does reinforce that the leak is real and from GeForce Now - it's more whether some of these games are simply reserved placeholders for no actual project yet (so reserving the next number of a series) or canned projects / tech demos etc.
And on that note, Oxide sounds right up my street - like strategy and sim games, and enjoy SimCity, Two Point Hospital and Cities Skylines.
A strategy game that mixed city building elements from Xbox first party or publishing? Sounds good to me
This seems more like someone’s wishlist than a really thing. I mean Gears 6, MK12, and KH 4 are pretty much given games.
@Rural-Bandit same here. Gears 5 is great.
@awp69 Seriously? Campaign ended on a cliffhanger. Coalition has made it clear they're working with Unreal 5 showing off character builds that look very Gearish.
FAR too many numbered sequels and remakes there. I get it, new IP are risky and all, but this is a sad state of affairs.
From a guy who likes sequels - within reason, and remakes - when appropriate and done well.
EDIT: This is all likely fake. Good point @The_New_Butler
It's totally made up, the lack of New IPs is a big clue. Almost every game is a sequel or Remake.
@BlueOcean Agreed. I'm currently playing through the RE games and I genuinely don't feel like playing through CV. I've heard that there's so much trial and error in that game, not to mention there not being multiple difficulty options and even stuff that can stop you from progressing through the game and force you to start over.
But if there's an RE4 remake coming, then I don't mind that at all. After all, RE4 is considered one of the best games of all time and for it to receive a remake with better visuals and controls would make it the perfect game basically.
@The_New_Butler Nintendo streams in China using GeForce Now - it's why they're on it.
Oxide wasn't even known about before this leak, but now WindowsCentral have had an insider at Microsoft confirm what it is - how was Oxide on the list if it's completely fake?
The source is real, it's been verified by a number of people independently by accessing the local database of Now.
The controversy is more that many are likely placeholder names / canned projects (Scalebound) / tech demos or reserved by someone with wishful thinking (think it contains the registration company though so maybe an admin person going overboard with reservations, say reserving Kingdom Hearts 4 years before they've even decided to make it)
@Chaudy Lol think you've identified the reason it's real - pretty much most of the game shows this year have been filled with remakes and sequels
@LtSarge Code Veronica has the most fascinating story of the franchise but it is a Dreamcast game. It is interesting how GameCube was much more advanced technically. The beginning is rough because you may run out of bullets very easily and the first enemies are very annoying and I said this as a Resident Evil fan that knows how to save ammunition. There is a metal detector later on where you have to leave metallic items, I think that is where you can block progress but it did not happen to me. This game is crying out loud for a remake.
I have played Resident Evil 4 on GameCube, Wii and Xbox One, several times on each platform but I did the same with the other RE games except Code Veronica which is the only one that has not a modern version. In my opinion, Resident Evil Remake is the best Resident Evil game but 4 is great. The first half is more interesting than the second half, though.
@Widey85 Thanks for explaining that.
@Liam_Doolan A question about Final Fantasy IX to you or anyone. I tried the Xbox version which is supposed to be a remaster like the mobile version but it's quite ugly. I read some time ago that a remaster or remake is in the works and this article says "possibly just a reference to the recent remaster". What is that recent remaster?
@The_New_Butler Yes like any database, it'll have junk / test / "thought we'd reserve it ahead of time but now we're not making that" data in it.
I think Nvidia saying "most of it is test data" is exactly the kind of thing I'd say if caught out like this - pour doubt on all of it in the hope the companies you've exposed aren't too angry.
I'd be surprised if more than say 5 to 10% of the records are actual test data, and probably a lot lower than that.
While some of it will obviously be pie-in-the-sky or long-cancelled projects too, I'd be surprised if in say 3 to 5 years time we don't look back and realise this leak was pretty accurate (admittedly, much of it is sequels and remakes / remasters that were already rumoured at or obvious).
Microsoft's listings have all pretty much been verified by WindowsCentral, while the Sony listings correlate strongly to the number of hidden (unpublished) listing Sony has on Steam, which was reported previously after the Steam API was queried to find the total.
But yes agreed, say even 90% of it is accurate, we don't know which games make up the 10% or the release schedules - so until announcements, all this really provides is some crumbs of comfort to those of us wishing for some of these games
And I say that as one of those wishing for Titanfall 3 and fed up when it's turned out to be Apex Legends from the looks of it
@thenewguy I was being sarcastic. Everyone knows there will be a Gears 6 and a Gears 7 and…
@BlueOcean That's a comment made by Push Square and they're referring to the FFIX re-release on PS4 and PC. That includes the Switch version and the one you mentioned on Xbox, I believe.
@awp69 Ah. I didn't catch it. Another Gears entry will be great though!
I can believe the chrono cross one because Forever Entertainment are remaking 2 square games, one being chrono trigger, there working on house of the dead 1&2) remakes to.
